Synodic month length 29.75 days

Length of current 1015 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 2 minutes. It is 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 1016 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠122.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠122.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠154.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 2 February 2082 at 18:11 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 February 2082 at 17:46 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 397 623 km

Moon is 397 623 km (247 071 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 321 km (223 893 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after its ascending node on 31 January 2082 at 01:22 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 February 2082 at 00:16 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 25 January 2082 at 12:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.230°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.278° in the next northern standstill on 9 February 2082 at 02:32 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 days on 13 February 2082 at 06:16 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
